On April 3, Girls Strength Training took a field trip to Strive Martial Arts in Germantown. The class specializes in teaching girls the important ways to say “no” and how to fight off an attacker.

The self-defense class lasts for about an hour. It involves activities such as acting out dangerous scenarios and wrestling a partner to the ground. It is important for young women have this information on how to keep ourselves safe, which is why the girls take the field trip each year.

┬ĘTaking this class was a lot of fun. I feel a lot safer now knowing all of the tips that the instructors gave you,” said Jaylin Graziano.

Coach Poffenberger, girls strength training teacher, believes this field trip is a great lesson on using your voice and staying out of abusive relationships. The class is also great for strength training because it has a good amount of exercise. The instructors also told the girls that being aware of your surroundings is key and to never put too much trust into a stranger.

Strive Martial Arts also offers classes other that self-defense for women. They have it for all genders and they also do martial arts classes for all ages.
